New plan from 3 Oceans

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

RE­VISED plans for a con­tro­ver­sial 43-storey de­vel­op­ment in Scar­bor­ough are be­ing rec­om­mended for ap­proval.

The Metropoli­tan Re­de­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity re­leased on Tues­day a plan­ning as­sess­ment re­port of the amended de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion lodged by Chi­nese de­vel­oper 3 Oceans in March.

The pro­posal is for a 43-storey and 33-storey mixed use de­vel­op­ment com­pris­ing apart­ments, a ho­tel, WA mar­ket hall and coastal ex­pe­ri­ence cen­tre at the cor­ner of Scar­bor­ough Beach Road and West Coast High­way.

The height of the lower tower has been re­duced from 38 storeys pre­vi­ously.

The re­port said the City of Stir­ling raised con­cerns about park­ing, traf­fic and trans­port, which were echoed by the Department of Trans­port and MRA, but the lat­ter said if they could be re­solved, it would sup­port the de­vel­op­ment sub­ject to con­di­tions.

There were 1445 sub­mis­sions made dur­ing the pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod, with 55 per cent in sup­port and 44 per cent against.

Devel­op­ers 3 Oceans have re­duced the height of one of the build­ings from 38 storeys to 33 in their new sub­mis­sion.
